Elementary Grades (2-4)

Our approach at the Elementary level emphasizes intentionality and cross-curricular learning, thoughtful connections to the rich field resources of the Washington area, a growing understanding of self, and supporting students in taking personal responsibility for navigating healthy social interactions in their immediate community and beyond. Our goal is to develop life-long, self-reliant learners who can think critically, solve problems, and express themselves in a variety of ways. Here are some snapshots that provide a window into some of the ways these themes spiral from Second through Fourth Grade.
